Hi All,

All three themes, patched to be IE compatible, since cover transparency was not working on it.

Theoretically IE9 should be HTML/CSS fully compilant, but apparently it isn't (at least on my experience).

For those wondering why IE has historically having trouble with open standards, here is more information.

Thanks for the info Roberto. :)
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

I guess that almost everybody knows about MS policies regarding standards, but I felt compelled to share this, since I'm really upset, because we could have set/get properties in the HMG style, but I can't add to the library, because IE is not standards compliant:

ie: adding this to the button class, you could access 'value' property as in HMG:

Code: Select all

    Object.defineProperty(this, "value",
    {
        get : function()
        {
           return control.value;
        },
        set : function(val)
        {
          control.value = val;
        }
    });
Then, the following will become valid code:

Code: Select all

oButton.value = 'New!';

alert( oButton.value );
But it does not work in IE9 (of course, it does in all other browsers:Crome,FF,Safari and Opera).

So, we must miss a wonderful feature because that.

Again... I'm really upset.

If someone knows some trick to get this working in latest IE, any help is greatly welcome.

TIA.

PS: For those discovering that according MSDN it should work, I know, but it doesn't work anyway :)
Regards/Saludos,

Roberto

That would be really great. Now, that is one of the reasons the market share of IE for getting down.

Yes, but, HMGSCRIPT is for the web and about 50% web clients are IE yet, so we can't ignore it.

There is lots of people that uses it, simply because it comes with Windows and changing it does not cross their minds :(

To make the things worst, IE10 will not have a Windows 7 version (only Windows 8) so, there is no hope that an upgrade will solve the problem.

I'll keep searching for a workaround...
